My friends, James Burd Brewster has done it again. Uncle Rocky – Fast Action is a fun and interesting story that not only educates your littles about different aircraft (and what little isn’t fascinated by planes?), it also explains the Heimlich Maneuver and even includes detailed instructions for performing the maneuver at the end.
I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t recommend the Glad to Do It! series by Mr. Brewster enough. With each book, the author teaches practical facts while telling an interesting story about an everyday hero. In this one, Rocky’s nephews are once more featured as stars of the show. They even get to say the catch phrase, “Glad to do it!” at the end.
It doesn’t get any better than that.
